What engine in this vehicle? Mileage? Any warning lights on or flashing? This sounds like a fuel delivery problem...fuel filter...fuel pump. A fuel system pressure test is required. Could also be a faulty EGR system. Checking the EGR system requires special tools. Unless you are mechanically inclined....best to have a repair shop test these systems.
